2nd Annual Monument Awards Honorees:
Awarded to an individual who is a leader in the broader community, taking into account influence on government, business community and overall influence. This person exemplifies leadership.
Assemblymember Susan Bonilla has been a true champion for the Monument Community since her time on the Concord City Council. She served on the advisory board of the Michael Chavez Center during her tenure on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, and helped to make introductions and build relationships for the Center, with funders and key stakeholders in the community, relationships that Monument Impact still enjoys today. She can always be counted on to help promote and financially support the important work that Monument Impact is doing in the community.
Awarded to a monument business that is committed to improving the community and has demonstrated an active role in serving the community.Las Montañas Market is a family-owned business that supports many groups, organizations, and more importantly, our community members. Through them, Monument Impact has been able to support students, clients, and community members to do special projects and events, such as: posting flyers and information, providing food for special events and the day labor workers, host special store tours that promote healthy eating on a budget, and fundraise for our Junior Giants league.With 2 different locations in our area, one in the Park N’ Shop Plaza, and the other one in Plaza Bonita on Monument Blvd., Las Montañas Market is a great success in the community. We do not consider Hector or Antonio our partners, but our friends; friends who create new job opportunities for our clients, students, members, and friends. They are Friends who understand the needs of single moms, minority groups, people of all levels of education, and of different backgrounds, and cultures. They encourage their employees to continue their education, and give opportunities to younger and older people, and those with special needs because finding and, most importantly, keeping a job is not easy at all.
Las Montañas Market owners and managers have made a difference in so many lives. They have helped our city and community by creating financial stability. Most importantly, they have made a difference by creating new opportunities for people ready to jump to the next level, and to follow the American dream!
A person, group of persons or an organization actively involved in the community to develop leadership and to further the kind of work that Monument Impact is engaged in.Central County Regional Group (sponsored by First 5 Contra Costa) is a group of community members who advocate for healthy, safe and family-friendly communities. In the past 3 years, CCRG has been a fundamental partner in the Walkability Audit and Assessment; which received a $2.2 million grant for street improvements on Detroit Avenue. CCRG is part of the current advocacy team to improve Monument parks.
